Could this be the best offense we’ve ever had? Eric Weddle thinks so. On his recent interview with Siruis NFL, Weddle was raving about the addition of Eddie Royal and called him the best slot receiver in the league. He said that this could be the best offense that we’ve ever had and he wonders how teams will be able to match-up with Royal, Robert Meachem and Antonio Gates.
Wasn’t Eddie Royal riding the bench last season? Eddie is a great addition to the team, but the hype that is surrounding him from players like Weddle and Coach Norv Turner is incredible. If he is as good as they say, then why didn’t the Broncos try harder to keep him and why didn’t they get him on the field last season?
Eddie Royal will be a huge upgrade from Patrick Crayton, but we will have to wait to proclaim this the best offense we’ve ever seen. Weddle was on a team with Vincent Jackson, Darren Sproles, Michael Turner, Ladainian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates all on offense and he still claims that this year’s offense could be the best we have ever seen. Hope he is right, but Eric Weddle needs a drug test!
